Welcome to iO Associates

Delivering specialist resourcing solutions across the Tech, Digital, Engineering and Defence sectors.

Our dedicated team of highly experienced and knowledgeable consultants provide bespoke solutions, working with businesses to find the perfect fit across contract, interim, search, and permanent appointments. We offer end-to-end support, from Statements of Work and IR35 determination processes to full MSP and RPO models.

In today’s fast-changing business environment, companies need a recruitment partner who understands. At iO, we host iO Meetups and conferences in the tech and digital sector, working closely with our clients to stay ahead of the curve and connect with top candidates.

We’re extremely proud of the partnerships we have built with both our clients and candidates and value the well established long-term relationships we have cultivated.

Working across the UK, Europe and US, our extensive knowledge, network and experience enables us to offer valuable advice and bespoke partnership-led solutions. We take the time to really understand our client requirements and find a solution tailored to you.​
iO Associates have expertise in certain technical skill markets that none of their competitors have - particularly in the application development space. I've had several situations where iO’s competitors have told me there are no candidates available, only for them to produce several for us to speak to and ultimately hire. They ask the right questions to understand their customer and adapt their service and style according to the situation.

We proactively engage with our attendees, partners, and sponsors to identify the most influential topics to be covered, ensuring we’re aligning with the interests of the group.


iO {ahy-oh}

This simple phonetical word personifies Science & Technology in our world today.

iO is not only Jupiter’s primary moon, but it is also based on the globally recognised symbol for “Input/Output”, it stands for the fundamental idea that in computing, technology and digital, every input results in an output. This is something we at iO hold with great importance and responsibility. The work we put in ensures results for our clients.

It has a visual representation that evokes similarities to the boolean digital values 1 & 0. Even tech giant Google called their annual developer summit ‘Google I/O’ – an event directed at the world’s best creative coders who ‘are building what’s next.’

It’s this approach that ensures iO use our experience within the sector to develop creative, bespoke and innovative solutions for the most sought after businesses.
